Boys Lacrosse secures big win against North Middlesex 


The Lunenburg boys’ and girls’ lacrosse teams had plenty to cheer about by the end of the night on Tuesday.
The boys inched to within a single win of the postseason thanks to a big win over North Middlesex Regional while the girls punched their ticket to the big dance with a convincing victory over the Red Raiders of Fitchburg High.
Beginning with the boys’ squad, Lunenburg entered Tuesday night’s makeup tilt with the Patriots needing two wins in its final three games to earn a district tournament berth.
The Blue Knights were coming off a heartbreaking loss to Bromfield the day before and used it as fuel as they came out Tuesday and played with intensity. Lunenburg opened a second quarter lead and never looked back as it notched a huge 14-10 victory over the Patriots.
The win evened Lunenburg’s overall record at 8-8. The Knights end their regular season needing to win one of its final two games. Lunenburg traveled to Fitchburg High on Wednesday afternoon before ending the campaign on Wednesday, May 30 with a home game against Leominster.
“I think over the last three games, this team has been playing some of the best lacrosse this program has seen,” said Lunenburg head coach Mike Fratturelli. “We have an awesome group of kids. They’re cohesive, they support each other and they battle. I really love this group that we have.”
